PL vs AA is coming!!!!
August 29th is almost here!
GET READY MY FELLOW AMERICANS
Professor Layton and the Giant A Mountain, a fake sub trailer for Azran Legacy. It took me like three days to do what I should’ve done last year! Made with some help from kev
Japanator Associate Editor Elliot Gay (aka RyougaSaotome) got a hold of the PLvsAA art book, and the results, are…
Well, pretty spectacular.
According to Elliot, the team considered creating ‘dark’ versions of Phoenix and Layton that would be residents of Labyrinth City, as well as having Edgeworth and Larry brought into the city as well. Also pictured is early art for Jeeken, and an unused NPC who carried a variety of masks.
Holy shit my sides. I don’t know whats funnier the evil Layton and Wright, or Larry and Edgeworth (who probably has that exact outfit already)
DS games! I love DS games!
So much to recommend here, so little time…
I’ll start with my most favorites. Watch out! I’m going to be talking a lot again
Rhythm Heaven is a joy! It’s a collection of mini-games all based around rhythm and you have a different task to do in each one. Including (but not limited to) romancing a moai statue, playing ping-pong, gulping down dumplings, and uprooting beets. Some people find the stylus controls frustrating, but I didn’t have a problem with it most of the time. And really I can’t stay mad at all those catchy songs! The whole game is serious ear worm potential. You have been warned.
The Ace Attorney series is fantastic. The gameplay boils down to point and click but theres a lot going on here. As a lawyer, you’ll be investigating places and interrogating suspects to help assess the situation. But the main attraction is when you go to the courtroom and thats when things start heating up! You gotta press witnesses, detect contradictions, whip out evidence, and above all else. seek out the truth. The cast is colorful, the music is beautiful, and the writing is superb!
There are six games in the series but only five of them are in English. The best way to start is at the beginning with Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (no additional subtitles).
I love the Professor Layton games! It’s another point and click adventure type series. Instead of courtroom antics, theres puzzle solving antics. The people in these games just love puzzles. Sometimes they’ll withhold information unless you solve a puzzle, sometimes they’ll just need help with a puzzle, but most of the time the Professor will see any old object and it will remind him of a puzzle. The puzzles can range from baby easy to brain-teasers, the stories are engaging, and theres animated cutscenes! Theres also fun little game-long sidequests that’ll keep you occupied. If you just have to have more puzzles, all the games have free downloadable puzzles!
The first game in the series is The Curious Village. As an added incentive theres bonuses for owning all the games in the series. As far as the regular DS goes, there are four games in the series. After that, the story continues on 3DS.
That’s not even every DS game I can recommend but it’s a few of my personal picks!
Asked Kev if I should make this a thing
He said Maybe
Maybe = Yes right?
This was my first thought reading the new update
His horns remind me of a puzzle!
They’re supposed to be matchsticks
